life of the Grose beak

147 0


There are a total of 34 species of Grosbeaks in the world, and of these, five are regularly occurring, and two are casual visitors to North America. The Grosbeaks in North America are from the finch and cardinal families. Male Grosbeaks are brightly colored sturdy birds, and females are more subdued in their coloring. They have powerful beaks suitable for cracking seeds and notched tails and look very similar in size and shape even though they are from different family groups. Black-headed Grosbeaks live to the west of the Rockies, and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks live to the east. Blue Grosbeaks live in the Great Plains and southern states.
